    A Zon Sonus 5/2 and a Legacy Standard.:D

    Mind you, they're not brand new. The Sonus needs a part on the bridge and the Legacy's electronics are seriously scratchy.


    As you can can see, I'd have to beat myself up if I didn't get this twosome. I could not be more stoked or broke. Please check my thread in the classifieds.

    Thanks, Osama.

    I took the pic in the street because the lighting was better. My digital camera needs all the help it can get.

    The one on the right is the Legacy. They're both Zons!:D

    Training wheels? I dunt need no fargin trainink wheels. Thats it, now Im just gonna roll ya and take it....;)
     
  13. I wish I could find a deal like that! Great basses, hope someday that I could even touch a Zon, but no one around here carries them. Good luck selling off the rest of your basses, and getting the new ones to top shape. I hope to someday have basses that make my fellow TBers have fights about stealing them!

    Yeah you suck alright. GREAT SCORE, Bud!

    If I may, what GC would even have a Zon these days? Joe's website lists GC as a dealer but I haven't seen a Zon in one yet.

    But Munji snag a sweet one several months back in a GC in So. Cal.

    Yeah, you REALLY suck!:D

    phew....I was almost expecting you to say you got a guitar! :eek:

    but that doesn't mean you don't suck. 2 Zons for the price of a half a Zon.....not fair.
